Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner - AGACNP Program - MSN Degree


Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioners assess and manage acutely ill patients within the in-patient or hospital setting working across departments from clinic to hospital environments such as ER, ICU, acute care wards and many other specialties.

Graceland’s online AGACNP program track prepares today’s RN to provide complex monitoring, order and interpret diagnostic tests, and develop composite treatment options based on current evidence-based practices to alleviate patient suffering and augment their overall health. 

AGACNP, Graceland’s newest graduate nursing program, prepares students to become expert clinicians by participating in clinical practicums spanning a multitude of acute care settings to include: emergency medicine, critical care medicine, hospitalist medicine, pulmonology, neurology and cardiology.

Additionally, students pick specialty practicums which may include orthopedics, endocrinology, oncology, rheumatology and hematology. This diverse mix of specialties ensures that our AGACNP program graduates are more than qualified not only to sit for the certification exam, but are prepared to practice from day one after graduation.
